Motorsport geeks excepted, not an awful lot of people know that Mazda is the only Japanese manufacturer to win the Le Mans 24-hour endurance classic, a feat it achieved in 1991.But while the MX-5 and the RX rotary-engined series have functioned as parallel sporting imprint within the brand, Mazda's mainstream products, particularly the 323 and previous 3, have not set the heather alight in terms of driving dynamics.But our 3 Sport demonstrates that the engineers who developed the car's chassis understood that getting from A to B and along windy roads to Z could and should be a rewarding experience behind the wheel in a relatively conventional lower medium hatchback.
